My Little Brother’s All Growed Up.

Eleven years ago, I had a cameo (well, my legs, mostly) as the D.A. in his award-winning student film, Shattered, done when he was in film school at the University of Miami. Since then, my “little brother,” Miami-based director R. Malcolm Jones

…has seriously earned his chops, having worked with everyone from hometown favorites Luther Campbell and Trick Daddy to Pharrell and Avril Lavigne.

As he was growing in his craft, whenever he’d come to L.A. to either shoot or do post on a video, he’d crash at my place, sometimes for a just a few days, occasionally for weeks at a time. Never without his ubiquitous New York ball cap, he was always intensely focused, determined to go to the next level. When he did stop for a break, we’d chop it up as we hung out. He was an excellent confidante and we never ran out of things to talk about. Now look at him. I’m so very proud.

His newest video, “Shawty, Get Loose!” by Lil Mama, featuring Chris Brown and T-Pain, is a straight-up killer. Reminiscent of classic hi-tech videos like “Scream” and “No Scrubs,” this thing seriously gets you moving, and I don’t even like music videos very much anymore. (Malcolm also directed Lil Mama’s debut smash, “Lip Gloss,” and her second single, “G-Slide.”)

Check out his handiwork. This video is all that…for real.

Go ‘head, Malcolm!!! Do your thing-thing, lil’ bro!!!
